About The Event

If you want to go to college, but you need help paying for it, College Goal Sunday is the event for you!

Before You Come

College Goal Sunday volunteers are waiting to help you get financial aid for college, but we need your help. It's important to get organized and bring the right materials with you. Follow these steps:

Each student and one parent should obtain a federal personal identification number (PIN) at www.pin.ed.gov. We can help you with this at the event but it will go much faster if you do this step ahead of time.

Gather your 2015 tax papers, if they are complete, and other financial statements. Download a list of What to Bring here. This is important! If you don't bring the right information it will be difficult to process your application.

At the Event

Financial aid experts and trained volunteers will:

  • Review the financial aid process with students and families.
  • Assist with the filing of the FAFSA.
  • Outline the results of the FAFSA.
  • Explain the next steps in the process.
  • Provide information regarding additional opportunities for financial aid and scholarships.

After the Event

When you leave College Goal Sunday, you will have a copy of your FAFSA information, your PIN numbers, scholarship information and a list of your next steps. Follow those steps closely and watch your mailbox. Following the submission of your FAFSA, the Department of Education, as well as all the schools you listed on the form, will contact you with follow-up information. For a review of this information, visit the What Happens Next section of our website.

If you need additional assistance after your FAFSA has been completed you can contact:
